What makes a marathon is the same rules that have been in place for many years in Australia. Those rules will be upheld and are as follows:

The marathon MUST be completed in a single stage of 42.195 kms.

The marathon event MUST be advertised in advance (30 days).

The marathon MUST be advertised as a 42.195 km or 42.2 km run.

The marathon MUST have a registration process.

The marathon MUST have a Race Director.

The marathon MUST have 3 finishers regardless of how many start.

The marathon results MUST be published.

Any distance over the 42.195 kms is classified as an Ultra event and therefor is NOT included in marathon totals.

Please note:

Events should not be advertised that conflict with existing similar events already listed.

AUSNZ 100 Marathon Club reserves the right to not accept events or persons for inclusion in the club at its sole discretion without reason given.

All events must measure the nominated distance of 42.195kms. 

Each marathon cut-off time is entirely up to the Race Directors discretion.

If unsure whether an event would be considered for inclusion please contact us.
